Gluten Free Cashew Butter Brownies with Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing

I finally did it. I finally came up with a gluten free brownie that everyone likes. Not only that, they actually like them more than wheat flour based brownies. These are a cashew butter based brownie similar to the controversial peanut butter brownie I shared a while ago. The cashew butter has a blander taste than peanut butter, so you just taste the chocolate. It’s also more expensive, so this one will be reserved for very special occasions.

The icing is amazing. That is all.

  1. Your treats always look so good! I wonder if I could pull this of with sunflower seed butter? I’m going to try it. I’m pretty sure with that delectable icing on top, it wouldn’t matter what the brownies tasted like!

    • Thanks Robin! It should work great with sunflower seed butter. Let me know if you try it and I’ll try it too. Cashews are so expensive and a bland alternative would be great.
